    Default PPE and TIC Help

    I'm writing the narrative for my volunteer fire company and have for the last few years. This year we found an 2 priorities and I'm have some issues making them both work in the narrative. Here is the situation the average age of our PPE is 10 yrs or older so I'm writing to replace it and we currently have one TIC on our one engine the only issue is that engine isnt always first out so I was considering requesting a grant for 18 coats and 18 pants and 2 TIC's, I just cant seem to get it to all tie together...Any ideas...thinking I just might leave it to just 18 coats and 18 pants.

    They are both firefighter safety. I dont know if you can justify two TICs though

    Remember you are trying to justify the PPE & TIC seperately, not trying to tie both together. Yes, both relate to safety, but in different ways. TIC's are added to PPE grants quite often with success.

    You can try for 2 TIC's, but most likely will be cut down to one, but really depends on the demographics. The argument for additional TIC's are for the entry crew, & one for the RIT or you have multiple staions.
